Phoenix Stage Company (PSC), proudly presents “It’s A Wonderful Life (A Live Radio Play)” by Joe Landry, a play the Las Cruces Sun News referred to as “…a delightful comedy with a touch of silliness…a zany and funny story with plot twists galore” beginning November 25th in Naugatuck. The production will run from November 25th through December 11th for nine performances.
Teresa Errico of Fairfield County Weekly sayd “Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life is a classic that’ll never to be surpassed by any remake. But what this play has to sacrifice, it makes up for with its original twist, its clever use of props, entertaining voices and a love story that you want to witness over and over again.”
Inspired by the classic American film, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is performed as a 1940s live radio broadcast in front of a studio audience. A small troup of actors perform the dozens of characters in the radio play as well as produce the sound effects. With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers ending his life one fateful Christmas Eve.
“It’s A Wonderful LIfe (A Live Radio Play)” is directed by Ian Diedrich. The production features Jim Buffone, Tim Cleary, Emily Diedrich, John Fabiani, Erich Greene, Al Hathway, Kate Samberg, Jeff Savage, Greg Weaver and Mary Wilson.
